Can a Front-Hook Bra Boost My Plus Size Girls Up?

It can seem as though finding the perfect bra is kind of like finding a unicorn—you’re pretty sure it exists, but so far, you haven’t found one. 

Today is the day.

If you’ve never tried front-hook bras, believe us when we say there’s something pretty magical about them. We love that they provide the versatility, comfort, and support women need. 

You can also find front-close wire-free or underwire bras. And, we have to admit, they’re pretty stylish. So what makes this bra so magical, and why don’t you know more about it? Let’s discuss some of the basics and benefits of this excellent bra type.

Can a Front-Hook Bra Boost My Plus Size Girls Up?

What is a front-hook bra?

As its name implies, a front-hook bra clasps in the front instead of the back. This style works well for all body types, but they are particularly well-suited for larger breasts. 

By having the closure in the front, the bra pulls everything forward and keeps it together. Women looking for a plus-size front-hook bra will be excited to learn they provide the full coverage and support you need for a larger bust.

Why have a front-closure bra?

There are many reasons to love front-closure bras. To name just a few:

  • With the hook in the front, there’s no need to stretch and contort yourself to reach the fasteners in the back.
  • Front-close bras are great to wear under all kinds of tops. Whether you need a simple T-shirt bra or something to wear under a top with a unique back design, the front-close bra is perfect. This style also works well with plunging necklines or even strapless tops.
  • They have a smoother look. There’s a need to worry about bumps or bulges from strap adjusters or the back band. 

How do front-closure bras work, and what are some of the benefits?

The best thing about this bra is it’s so simple to wear. It hooks in the front, or gore (the space between your breasts),

Some women with mobility or other health issues have trouble fastening a bra in the back. It can be a challenge for them to secure the small hook-and-eye closures.

Front-close styles are great for sleeping. You don’t have to worry about the clasps poking you in the back during the night because all of the hooks are in the front.

Sports bras have some amazing front-close styles. From molded cups to ample ventilation panels on the sides to secure zip-front closures, you can complete the most intense workout and not have to worry that something is popping out, bouncing around, or being a distraction. 

For women with plus-sized breasts, rest assured that a good front-close sports bra will keep the girls exactly where they need to be!

How do you wear a bra with a front closure?

It’s easy to hook a front-close bra. The clasp rests against the gore, or center of the bra where the cups meet. Most styles have a plastic or metal fastener that slides into place, fitting down into the other side. 

Flatten the clasp, and you may hear a faint clicking noise. The clasp is now secure and you are ready to go.  Some styles still feature the traditional hook-and-eye closure that most women are used to.

How do you unhook a front-closure bra?

How do you unhook a front-closure bra?

The beauty of this style is that it’s just as easy to take off as it is to put on. Familiarize yourself with the bra’s closures so you understand how they work (a plastic fastener can be different from the metal hook-and-eye closure, etc.) Keep in mind that the clasps can vary from one style to another.

To unhook this type of bra, you’re going to do the opposite of how you fastened it when putting it on. Lift the edges of the bra up. The clasp should unlock. Then, turn the clasp, so it pops out of the fastener. 

Why do most bras hook in the back?

Most bras hook in the back because of the band. Many bra band styles come with at least two rows of hook-and-eye closures that can be tightened or loosened as needed. With the front-close style, there is usually just one clasp, and it cannot be adjusted (although, of course, there are some exceptions). 

Front-close bras are another way to make you look great and feel comfortable all day long. They provide tremendous support, work with several different back designs, and give your girls the boost they need!
